, and the truth is, they are brutal. look at what's happening in the iranian energy area. it's not only the fact that they are able to sell, you know, less than 50% of what they were selling before, but their production, output down to 2.6 million barrels a day, and part of the reason for that is because of the sanctions, the inability to continue to invest in their energy infrastructure, the inability to continue to pump and store oil as they shut down oil fields, may not be easy for them to recoop. look at what's happening to the currency, devaluation, and there's estimates that the currency's devalued by half every two months. think about what that means. that means what you are buying, and when you go and buy something, cost twices as much, and what you have in the bank is worth half as much. this is bound to affect the society as a whole, and, again, look at what the supreme leader said. on more than one occasion, explicitly called for officials to stop fighting each other, and that's not the first time that's happened, but it's interesting when you look at what some of the criticisms are.
